    #FrackingCrazy

    Everything you didn't want to know about Woodfibre LNG and how it will impact Howe Sound communities.

    Join us as Tracey Saxby and Eoin Finn share more than five years of research about how Woodfibre LNG and the associated 24-inch high pressure FortisBC pipeline will increase fracking and lock us into 25-40 years of extreme carbon pollution.

    Learn how these projects will impact the health and safety of our communities, put Howe Sound residents at risk, and threaten the recovery of Howe Sound’s ecosystems and wildlife.

    Then find out how you can help to stop them.

    2019 Federal Election

    The Federal election is coming up on October 21st 2019. Here's what you need to do:

    1. Get informed

    Who are your candidates? What are their values? Are they willing to collaborate with others across party lines? How well will they represent their constituents in Ottawa? This is a critical time for Canada, and who we elect will determine whether we tackle our climate emergency, or continue to bury our head in the sand and promote dirty fossil fuel projects. Make sure you vote wisely.

    Learn more about the parties and your candidate!

    Watch the all-candidates debates

    Watch the federal leaders debate to learn more about each party. But remember, you should be voting for your specific candidate in your riding! Don't vote for the leader, or the party. You need to know more about who your candidates are, and whether they are a serious contender or just there to warm a seat for a particular party (and split the vote).

    WATCH THE FEDERAL ELECTION LEADERS DEBATE 2019-10-07

    WATCH THE MACLEANS DEBATE 2019-09-12 (note that Justin Trudeau chose not to participate)

    Where do the parties stand on Woodfibre LNG?

    • The Green Party is the only party that has clearly stated its opposition to Woodfibre LNG and LNG development. They have promised to ban fracking outright as part of their platform, and given that 85% of our natural gas currently comes from fracking, that means LNG projects simply cannot happen. SEE GREEN PARTY PLATFORM
       
    • The NDP have previously expressed opposition to fracking, but currently support LNG development. Yes, there is a disconnect there. Svend Robinson is the only NDP candidate that is vocally opposed to LNG development and fracking. They have committed to eliminate fossil fuel subsidies, but their platform makes no specific mention of LNG or fracking. Given the Provincial NDP support for LNG it is unlikely that the Federal NDP will oppose LNG development. READ MORE HERE and SEE NDP PARTY PLATFORM
       
    • Over the last four years Liberals have committed several tax breaks and subsidies to support LNG development, and have approved several LNG projects. Their platform makes no mention of eliminating fossil fuel subsidies, and their recent purchase of an oil pipeline will make it much harder for Canada to transition away from fossil fuels. SEE LIBERAL PARTY PLATFORM
       
    • The Conservatives are clearly committed to supporting more oil and gas development including LNG, and will eliminate the carbon tax despite evidence that carbon taxes work to reduce emissions.

    2. Vote!

    In the last Federal election in 2015, there was an increase in voter turnout to 68.5%, the highest voter turnout since 1993. The people we elect to Federal government will be making key decisions on the future of Canada, and how we take action on climate change. Your vote is critical.

  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 2nd November 2018

    "Trudeau: Pull up your socks on climate change"

    Approximately 50 people stood in the rain outside Gleneagles Golf Course in West Vancouver last night, determined to send a message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was scheduled to attend a $1,500-per-plate Liberal fundraising event inside.

    With signs reading "Trudeau: Pull up your socks on climate change!" and "Climate Action Now!" and "LNG = Climate Change," concerned citizens created a chorus with drums and pots and pans as they waited for more than three hours for the Prime Minister's convoy to appear.

    "Scientists have warned us that we have twelve years to limit climate change catastrophe," said Tracey Saxby, marine scientist and Executive Director of My Sea to Sky. "People are angry about the lack of real climate action from our leaders, and we're scared about the very real consequences that climate change is already having on our communities.

    Meanwhile Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government continues to expand fossil fuel production, by approving Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export facilities, and the recent Kinder Morgan pipeline purchase. This is not climate leadership."

    The federal Liberals continue to cave in to pressure from the fossil fuel industry, with the most recent proposal to lower the carbon tax on coal burning power plants to $1 per tonne.

    "The Federal government is allowing the biggest carbon polluters to continue destroying our climate. Our children will be paying the price for that pollution."

    As the Federal election approaches in 2019, citizens warn that this kind of action is just the beginning.

    "This is a climate emergency," Saxby said. "We need urgent action from all levels of government to immediately reduce carbon pollution, and retrain oil and gas workers to help support the transition to a renewable energy economy. Our future depends on it."

    Neither the Prime Minister nor local MPs Pamela Goldsmith-Jones or Jonathan Wilkinson stopped to speak with protesters.

    We will continue to fight: Woodfibre LNG is not a done deal

    Squamish Nation has voted to approve the Impact Benefit Agreement with Woodfibre LNG, FortisBC, and the Provincial Government, fulfilling a key condition imposed as part of the Nation's environmental assessment process.

    We respect Squamish Nation’s decision, but recognize that this was a split vote.

    My Sea to Sky remains steadfastly opposed to Woodfibre LNG.

    We have grave concerns about the impacts that Woodfibre LNG will have on wildlife in Howe Sound, the lack of safety regulations for LNG tankers in Canadian waters, the costs of air pollution to human health, the subsidies that are unfairly propping up a sunset industry, and the upstream and local climate impacts of this project.

    "Scientists have warned us that we have twelve years to limit climate catastrophe," said Tracey Saxby, marine scientist and Executive Director of My Sea to Sky. "People are scared about the very real consequences that climate change is already having on our communities. We cannot build new fossil fuel infrastructure when we are facing a climate crisis that threatens the future of our planet."

    "Nearly 18,000 people around Howe Sound have signed a declaration in opposition to Woodfibre LNG. This project does not have social license to proceed and we will continue to fight for our future."

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 29th November 2018

    Woodfibre LNG is a bad deal for BC

    On Wednesday 21st November, Squamish Nation voted 8-6 in a contentious decision to approve an Impact Benefit Agreement with Woodfibre LNG, FortisBC, BC Hydro, and the Provincial Government, fulfilling a key condition imposed as part of the Nation's environmental assessment process.

    Details of this agreement have been leaked via The Breaker News, and include lands, jobs, and $225.6 million in cash payments over 40 years, averaging almost $4.7 million a year.

    "Woodfibre LNG is a bad deal for BC," stated Eoin Finn, Chair of My Sea to Sky, a people-powered environmental organization that has been working to stop Woodfibre LNG since 2014. "This is a giveaway of public money and resources, to a foreign-owned company owned by Sukanto Tanoto, an Indonesian billionaire whose companies have a history of tax evasion and human rights violations."

    "This shows just how far the Provincial government is willing to go to prop up an LNG export industry that is simply not viable without massive subsidies and tax breaks. This is scandalous."

    My Sea to Sky remains steadfastly opposed to Woodfibre LNG.

    We have grave concerns about the impacts that Woodfibre LNG will have on wildlife in Howe Sound, the lack of safety regulations for LNG tankers in Canadian waters, the costs of air pollution to human health, the subsidies that are unfairly propping up a sunset industry, and the upstream and local climate impacts of this project.

    "Woodfibre LNG is a bad deal for British Columbians, a bad deal for Howe Sound, and a bad deal for our climate."

    Nearly 18,000 people around Howe Sound have signed a declaration in opposition to Woodfibre LNG.

  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 25th March 2019

    New fossil fuel subsidies jeopardize climate action

    On Monday, the BC legislature voted 80–3 to approve new fossil fuel subsidies to prop up LNG export projects like Woodfibre LNG and LNG Canada. This latest tax giveaway is in addition to subsidized power rates, elimination of the LNG royalty tax, reduced provincial income tax, and exemptions from carbon tax increases, to name a few. The total tax giveaway has been calculated at over $6 billion.

    "The tax breaks and subsidies that have already been granted to this fledgling LNG industry are irresponsible and reckless," said Tracey Saxby, marine scientist and Executive Director of My Sea to Sky. "Subsidizing a new fossil fuel industry when we're facing a climate crisis is fracking crazy."

    While LNG has been promoted as "clean" and "green" by the Provincial government, experts say BC LNG will create more greenhouse gases than coal due to leaking methane from fracking, and delay the transition to renewables.

    "Scientists have warned us that we have twelve years to avoid climate catastrophe. People are scared about the very real consequences that climate change is already having on our communities. Incentivizing fracking and the rapid export of BC's natural gas seriously threatens BC's ability to meet its climate targets."

    The 18.9 Mt of greenhouse gas reductions proposed in B.C's climate plan (CleanBC) still fall 25 percent short of achieving our legislated 2030 target of 25.4 Mt to meet the Paris Agreement.

    To achieve the new emissions target outlined by the recent IPCC report, we need to reduce B.C.’s emissions by 27.9 Mt by 2030 (45 percent below 2010 levels). That means the shortfall between B.C’s climate plan (Clean BC) and where we need to get to according to the IPCC is now a total of 9 Mt.  Projected emissions from the two approved LNG projects in British Columbia (Woodfibre LNG and LNG Canada) are 9.1 Mt annually. If it proceeds, LNG Canada will be the single biggest source of carbon pollution in B.C.

    "We need to acknowledge the cognitive dissonance of our governments: while we work to reduce our emissions, our Provincial and Federal governments continue to incentivize new emission intensive projects like LNG. This is a disappointing turnaround for the BC NDP, who spent years criticizing the BC Liberals for subsidizing LNG projects."

    "Imagine if instead these incentives supported the transition to a renewable energy future. We cannot continue to build new fossil fuel infrastructure when we are facing a climate crisis that threatens the future of our planet and human existence."
